Basking in Luxury in Rome

...and we're back from Rome. It was a great trip and just the right length - 9 days. By that point, we were pretty much ready to head home and our baby boy had enough of the travel stroller and wanted to get back to his plush UPPAbaby. Granted, the McLaren Volo is a great travel stroller... light, folds easily and sturdy. It took a beating on the cobblestones of Rome and came out unscathed but I'm sure it gets old after a while.

So, I'll start with a quick hotel recommendation. One caveat, though... we were blessed to get an incredible rate via a family connection so don't think we could normally afford this place (I wish); however, if you have more money than you know what to do with and want to spend plenty of it for a luxurious stay, we would highly recommend the St. Regis Grand Hotel near Piazza Repubblica. It is worth every Euro.

Everything and I mean everything was outstanding. We had a spacious Imperial Room which had plenty of room for all of our stuff as well as a crib for the baby. The bed was a dream - soft and very comortable and the bathroom was cavernous, particularly by European standards. Service was impeccable and the staff at the Grand Bar, the doormen, the concierges and the maids all went way out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Honestly, it was ideal. The hotel is well-deserving of it's inclusion on the 2007 Conde' Nast Gold List and its *****L rating.
